Old grungy cabinet to new grungy cabinet

Here she is this ol' thing I've been dragging around for years.  It's been living out back, rusty and stinky so I brought her in [after hosing down] and cleaned her up--just so ya know, I finally got rid of that date in the corner of photos-sorry I'm such an amateur, you would never know my dad was a professional photographer I wish I'd learned more when he was still with us!

                          Love the rusty screws and hinges
                     So I took it apart
                       Painted it white and distressed with the palm sander and stained the top
   You can see I left the metal mesh inserts cuz they're neat looking.  I stained and wiped it off so it has a very distressed look and I  added these cool knobs for a little understated bling...
      and now she will live in the bathroom!  I cut down 2 of those big old embroidered towels of my mom's and made little guest towels to hang on the handles I added to the sides of cabinet.  Cute!!


  1. What a lovely cabinet! Looks like an old cheese cabinet, maybe?
    You did a great job with the makeover.

  2. I love this cabinet! Thanks for stopping by today.

  3. Wow! That looks great!
    I bet you havs had that more than 25 years!!
